Our Services

Assembly & Test Services

StratEdge Assembly and Test Services Division assemble and test single- and multi-chip MMIC and fiber optic devices into StratEdge packages, using eutectic or epoxy die and passive component attach and automatic wire bonding. After assembly, the packages are lidded, leads trimmed and formed, and then tested with a HP 8510C network analyzer at up to 50 GHz. Post assembly services include labeling, bulk packaging, and preparation for delivery. Read More..

Customized Packages

StratEdge offers customers packages in leaded and leadless drop-in formats, leaded and leadless surface mount formats, and specialty high power and high speed digital designs. In addition to the hundreds of standard package outlines available, StratEdge offers custom design services at a fraction of the cost of co-fired ceramic packaging. Please contact the factory for additional details.

Leaded Surface Mount Packages

Leaded Surface Mount Packages

The SMX series of surface mount packages are excellent for use at frequencies as high as 26 GHz. This is an example of an SMX customized for use with a DC-18 GHz SPDT switch MMIC.

The SMX series packages are available in several different sizes and lead counts. Please contact the factory for detailed information.


Molded Ceramic Packages

GW4040M-5 is a high reliability 52 lead package used in many defense and aerospace applications. It has excellent electrical performance at frequencies as high as 12 GHz when used in a GSG configuration.

These packages are available with combo solder lids for classic hermetic applications.

StratEdge Corporation Packages Used in Mars Rovers

Did you know that StratEdge packages are used in the Mars Rovers?

The Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity were sent to explore the surface of Mars in the summer of 2003. To transmit signals and information back to Earth, the rovers were equipped with the 580412 SE 20 power amplifier package from StratEdge. The amplifier system was designed to protect the gallium arsenide monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) to ensure true signal integrity. All signals that are transmitted go into the StratEdge package through the chip, and back out the package. Read More
